Heather's Recipe: Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Compote
Adapted from a Chef John recipe
Ingredients for Pancakes:
¾ cup cold water
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons self-rising flour if you don’t have self-rising flour you can use 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt
Ingredients for Blueberry Compote:
2 cups blueberries (fresh or from frozen)
2-4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you like)
½ cup water
- Whisk water and baking soda together in a mixing bowl. Add ricotta cheese, lemon zest, vegetables oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth, breaking up lumps of cheese as you mix. Add melted butter, lemon juice, and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons self-rising flour. Whisk together, stirring until most of flour disappears into the batter.
- Let batter sit at room temperature about 15 minutes.
- While batter is resting, combine blueberries, powdered sugar and water in a pan and heat on medium heat, stirring to mix
- Heat lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat. Portion out 1/4 cup scoops of batter onto skillet (cook in batches). When bubbles begin to form on the surface and the edges of the pancakes start to look dry (2 to 3 minutes), flip and cook other side until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
